NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD to Power US Government Generative AI.

Nonprofit MITRE is advancing the White House executive order on AI with a system build-out that supports research and development in climate science, healthcare and cybersecurity.

The U.S. government will deploy an NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD to generate generative AI improvements in cybersecurity, healthcare, and climate research in support of President Biden’s executive order on artificial intelligence.

The October executive order aims to manage the dangers associated with AI and ensure U.S. leadership in the field. A new NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD system is being implemented by MITRE, a nonprofit company that runs research and development labs supported by the federal government. This system will enable researchers and developers to take advantage of large computing leaps.

The Federal AI Sandbox, a platform developed by MITRE to facilitate better experimentation with next-generation AI-enabled applications across federal government agencies, will be supported by the DGX SuperPOD.

“The recent executive order on AI encourages federal agencies to reduce barriers for AI adoptions, but agencies often lack the computing environment necessary for experimentation and prototyping,” said Charles Clancy, senior vice president and chief technology officer at MITRE. “Our new Federal AI Sandbox will help level the playing field, making the high-quality compute power needed to train and test custom AI solutions available to any agency.”

Federal agencies will receive the computational improvements required to train massive language models and other generative AI tools to create cutting-edge applications through the Federal AI Sandbox.

The sandbox’s NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD system can execute an exaflop of 8-bit AI computation, which is equivalent to a quintillion arithmetic operations per second. This allows for the large-scale training and deployment of customized LLMs and other AI solutions.

The supercomputing endeavor coincides with the White House’s recent announcement of plans for a $110 million cooperation with NVIDIA to support AI education in higher education.
